Pokémon names

So there’s a lot of confusion about pokemon character name tags.  After consulting Miss Cleo, the horoscopes (the new ones), and our resident pokénerd, we’ve decided on the names in the picture.

Copyright/DNP/Furry Jew Lawyers

So here’s the deal with the whole issue:

Paheal works hard foster good relations with artists and respect their right to determine where their art is posted on the internet. They work hours on images and should have a say as to what happens to it.

On the other hand, bending over backwards to the slightest whims creates headaches, huge DNP lists, and generally disappoints and frustrates a community that both expects and ascribes to the open nature of the internet.

Then, on the extreme, we get people who threaten us with lawsuits and scare us into compliance. These are often referred to as SLAPPs. This occurred recently with Drawn-sex, as many of you may know. We do not have the resources to fight these in court, and hosts tend to be skittish about legal reliability. Even if we were to fight something, our host would still shut down the site. Also, I, for one, am not willing to have my name on a lawsuit of this nature and jeopardize future opportunities.

We are also aware of the “how can you copyright stolen copyrighted characters and make money off of them” argument. There is stuff about parodies and fair-use in there, as well as international agreements and local copyright laws. In short, if you are a lawyer and want to explain it to us, feel free. In the mean time, we are not concerned about it.

In sum, we walk a fine line between courting artists’ respect and users’ expectations. We wish that all artists would allow their art on our site. We wish all artists didn’t care about what was said about their art. But we understand that not all are like this, and respect that. In this respect, we made the DNP list and the Friends of Paheal list to show that attempt at balance.

Art Theft

2 of the 4 versions of The Scream, by Edvard Munch, have been stolen, but recovered.

Paheal works hard to protect the rights of artist, and you can help.

I consider “art theft” the any of the following, or a combination of them:

  1. Removing an artist’s name, logo, or signature.
  2. Adding your own name, logo, or signature without having do anything to the image.
  3. Adding a watermark to an image without the artist’s permission (e.g. aerisdies dot com).
  4. Taking credit for an image you did not create.

If you suspect an image has been “stolen”, please email us (staff {at} with your case.  Commenting on the image alone will not bring it to our attention.  Please try to provide some proof and a link to the original image.  The first two points listed, especially doing both of them, is the worst kind of art theft and I will personally go out of my way to report it on other sites.  Any images that violate #3 will be deleted from out site (a list of offending websites can be found in the FAQ).


PS: 2 of the 4 versions of The Scream, by Edvard Munch, have been stolen, but recovered.

Update #2

Ok so it took longer than i thought to get the money together for the new server but I finally purchased it today. Apparently there is a waiting period of a week to get this thing set up so yes that means another week of no image uploads (could be less time). So apologies for all this waiting time. But once its all done and dusted the site should run 100% without issues. From a financial point of view we are just about making enough money to cover our costs but we wont really know the full picture until we have the site back to 100% for a few weeks. I still stand by my decision to not accept donations in the past from the community because I didnt want you guys to feel you had to give anything to us for what we give you. However please understand that with these new server costs there may be a time in the distant future where we have to ask for a little help tho hopefully that day will never come.

Thanks again for your patience, thanks to everyone who reads this blog and a big fuck you, you retarded monkeys to everyone who emails us saying “DA SITE IS BROKE DA IMAGES ARENT WORKING WHATS WRONG WHY ARENT YOU FIXING IT” Because really… all it takes is for you to turn your head by a few degrees to the left to see the big READ THIS part of the news box, get the link to the blog and of course the twitter feed. So yeah, kill yourself.

To everyone else. Thanks, you make this place what it is.

P.S. Shish is the guy who gets the server up and running so really any thanks you guys give should be directly to him. He is a saint.

2 today.

Thats right. Paheal is 2 years old today. And surprise surprise the thumbnails are back! Now alot of you were wondering if we held getting the thumbs up until the birthday, no we didn’t its just the way things fell. Anyway, now that things are back up and running again the site should be stable for a long time to come, but never say never and if the site/thumbs do go down again you wont have to wait as long as you did this time.

In the mean while, we have been thinking of creating separate pages for cosplay and rule63 content. Cosplay is not rule34 so there is an argument for a new site but 63 is more ambiguous. A poll might appear in the news section at some point if we decide to leave it up to the users.

Happy birthday paheal.

Let me start by just saying sorry. Sorry this took so long, sorry i havent been updating with new info, sorry sorry sorry. Ok now that thats out of the way. The site will be back functioning 100% on the 24th! Which just so happens to be the sites 2nd birthday. Coincidence? no.

So we tried something… and it didnt work. Some of the thumbnails came back but just as we thought, it didnt last very long. So its back to the drawing board once again. Dont worry, the site will be back up soon but please understand that i know exactly how frustrating it is at the moment when the site is thumbnail-less and really slow so im going to close her down for a few hours and look at some options. In the meantime, come into the temporary message board while things get sorted.

I have been recieving a few emails now from users complaining about the situation the site is in. Quite simply, we have no thumbnail server and there is a possibility that we will not be getting our old one back. Tho we have recieved some donation offers and we appreciate them alot, it looks like we are going to have to buy our own dedicated server to fix this problem. Now, contary to what alot of people think, paheal (and porn sites in general) does not make alot of money from advertising, the major advertising companies just refuse to touch your website if it has anything they deem to be inappropriate and this has been a problem for some time. I am willing to pour every cent this site makes into getting a proper dedicated server and have also started a fund out of my own pocket. Also, tho we appreciate the offers of monetary help, this is not 4chan and i am not moot so i refuse to ask the userbase for money, this site is and always will be provided 100% free so keep your money in your pocket and go buy something for yourself instead, god knows the economy needs a bit of a kick up the arse.

Anyway, rest assured, one way or another, this problem WILL be fixed soon, and once it is fixed we should be problem free for a long long time (hopefully).  So for now, please be patient and read a book or something. And most importantly, dont forget to thank Shish for the endless, tireless work he does for me and you. He deserves it.

Paheal turned one year old this week, pretty big milestone if i do say so myself. Of course the site wouldnt be here now if it wasnt for Shish and his great gallery software Shimmie, and of course YOU the users.

So thanks alot for a great year and here’s to many more.
